This session will address the opportunities to reduce both fuel usage and the CO2 footprint of aviation using a combination of lightweight materials plus Formula 1 derived technology and thinking in the aerospace cabin market. This will be an opportunity to learn more about Project ATEK – an 18-month Aerospace Technology Institute/UK government sponsored programme with Williams Advanced Engineering, JPA Design, SWS Certification and Airbus to deliver a novel and innovative lightweight composite business class seat structure for prototype demonstration (Technology Readiness Level 6).
